This session explores the more positivistic side of educational research, such as interventions, pseudo-experiments comparative studies, as well as touching on larger-scale surveys. With a nod to sequential and concurrent designs, we'll discuss the power and limitations of more quantitative scholarship designs, ensuring that you leave with an understanding beyond what might be your own 'typical' methodology.
